The Credit List: Week 1 Jaguars

 50 replies

Every week Arrowhead Guys plays the Credit List or the Blame Game. We’re giving out props today.

Every week we either play The Blame Game or post the Credit List, depending on the outcome of the game. After curb stomping the dirty AF Jaguars, we go straight to The Credit List.

It’s pretty easy how this works. We list the five people most deserving of the credit for this win. As always, readers are encouraged to play along, but you must follow the rules (we have rules here?). You get to choose five, and only five, people who deserve the most credit for the victory and must list them in order. I will list them in order from least to most credit, finishing last with the single person I believe is most responsible for the result of the game. Jump to the comments and do the same. Just remember: rules.

Now, without any further blabbering, let’s get to it.

Travis Kelce:

The first entry on this All-Offense Edition of the Credit List is Travis Kelce who, while limited to only 3 receptions, managed just over 29 yards per reception for a total of 88 yards. A score would have likely been added to his statline had Mahomes just looked.

LeSean McCoy:

I’ll take “things I never expected to say a week ago” for $500, Alex.

Apparently Shady is back. Back again. Back to 8 ypc. Tell a friend.

Despite not getting the start, or being fitted with the proper sized jersey, McCoy was the most productive and efficient runner out of the backfield.

Andy Reid:

You can’t talk offense in Kansas City and not talk about Andy Reid. Despite losing his #1 WR in the 1st quarter and having his quarterback hobbled in the 2nd, Reid still managed to call a game that blew the doors off an allegedly good defense without showing his hand at any new wrinkles he may have in store to roll out this year.

Sammy Watkins:

Sammy Watkins came to play, and boy did he ever, racking up 198 yards on 9 catches (22 yards avg) and 3 TD’s as he sliced through the porous Jacksonville defense on his way to clowning King Clown Jalen Ramsey who apparently can’t cover the Chiefs #2 WR either.

Patrick Mahomes:

This one seems pretty obvious, no? After getting his leg rolled up in the 2nd quarter he rubbed some Tussin on it, taped up and hobbled back on the field and led the Chiefs to victory while starting out the season with 378 yards and 3 TD’s, putting him on pace for approximately 6000 yards and 48 TD’s. Too soon?

This probably needs to be renamed ‘4 guys and Mahomes responsible for the win’ or ‘5 guys besides Patrick responsible for the win’. I mean, is there going to be a game where Mahomes isn’t in the top 5?

Tony Sommer

In week 17 when Henne gets the start.

I would throw Andy Reid in there as well

Tony, what’s HisDirkness doing nowadays? You got any connection with him? This article reminded me of those posts he used to do for AP “The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.” That was some of the best content on AP but then he stopped doing it a year or two ago. Would be sweet to recruit him for AG.

5. Spags.-Our defenders were fired up. I know some people are complaining about their performance, but the unit looks much improved.

4. Reid-Called a great game. I wish the screen to Sherman would have scored.

3. Mahomes-Almost 400yds, 3TDs, no picks.

2. Watkins-Strong, fast, smooth, and focused.

1. Jaguars tackling-I don’t think I have ever seen such a pathetic group effort as that.

Honestly the game was such a dominant performance that the last two Jaguars TDs were in garbage time. It was 37-13 going into the 4th quarter.

I didn’t even know there was a 4th quarter thanks to CBS.

I saw it. Not impressed. Bounced off a guy into his hands

It goes to Kpass first and he bobbles it but fortunately he at least tipped it up so Frank can grab it. It’s still a heads up play so I’m not complaining. Would you rather he had be in coverage?

Did you just get out of a coma? Because you obviously missed last season for the chiefs.

5. Damien Wilson – that fumble pretty much put the game to rest
4. Mccoy – I’m no longer concerned when it’s 3rd and short.
3. Kelce – was absolute $ when he was targeted and would’ve had a TD if not for…
2. Mahomes – played excellent as always even despite a pretty poor showing by the OL.
1. Watkins – The lizard warrior unleashed his powers. He looks unstoppable. He gets the top nod because he was the most productive offensive player (non QB) of any team this week.

5. Damien Wilson – The defense overall was not great, but his FF (against a guy who had never fumbled before) at that point in the game was huge as it ended up with the Jags down 3 scores instead of 3 points.

4 through 1 would be the same except I’d barely put Sammy #1 over Mahomes this week (more like 1a and 1b, but apparently we have to follow rules now). They combined for all our passing TDs, but really the first TD was all Sammy. Also, despite his grittiness, Mahomes deserves a little downgrade for trying a completely unnecessary no-look pass that cost the team 4 points.

Tony Sommer

This is what I love about Mahomes. He’s so good that a single bad play sticks out.

The difference between Mahomes and Alex Smith:

Mahomes throws passes to open receivers he doesn’t look at.

Smith looks at open receivers and doesn’t throw the pass.

Never too soon. Thats probably the best defense we will go against all year. Ill hear your arguements for Chicago but Donkey lovers can take a hike because we are going to shred that defense. Frankly Im going to be disappointed if Mahomes doesnt at least get near 5000 and 50 again

Ravens defense is up there.

In fact, the city of Baltimore is so dedicated to defense that public defender is one of the most high demand professions in the metro

Ill give you the Ravens. Im not going to give them much credit for week one because they were going against a team that cant even tank correctly. Can somebody please explain to me why you would trade for Rosen and then play Fitzpatrick over him?

Pats seems pretty good too.

I think we’re in ostrich mode regarding the Pats right now: just putting our heads in the sand and pretending they don’t exist.

I wouldn’t be as much concerned if their defense wasn’t so much better than ours.

The cheaters up up there, but if you were surprised by the week one results then you are a sucker. Belicheat always plans well for those types of games and the steelers defense sucks against good qbs.

workingmansdead

This isn’t based on week one, but I think the Steelers are going to be a bad team this year. They won’t hit 8-8.

DenverDonkeyHater
DenverDonkeyHater

I think 8-8 would by definition be average. They didnt do much to improve in the offseason and didnt make the playoffs last year. They look like a 7 to 10 win team to me.

QuackTastic

I’d be very surprised if they surpassed 8

HawaiiFiveOh

Looking at their scheduling, I have them going 7-9, losing to the Bengals twice, Ravens twice, splitting with the Browns, splitting with the NFC West, and sweeping the rest of the AFC East. If we base that on week 1 play of course.

MidKan Chiefs Lifer

They will split with Bengals too, I think

That’s the only one on the schedule that could go either way to me. I’d rather see them lose. I’m an optimist. 😀

workingmansdead

Right, 8-8 is average. I said they won’t hit 8-8, so they’ll be less than average. Less than average is bad.

I’ll take the damn credit. Since it’s possible that I’m the only living organism existing inside a computer generated matrix, it is possible the whole thing took place inside my head. You are welcome.

Where are your other 4? Didn’t you read the rules!

Right, sorry about the lapse. I do not want to piss off Walter Sobchak.
2.) PM II. Blessed be his name. Dude started out on fire. No 2nd year slump. Unbelievable we have such a great QB.
3.) The Solar Lizard.
4.) D Rob with the key block to free Sammie for our 1st TD & set the tone.
5.) Zeus with several monster catches.

I sure hope the rest of our key guys stay healthy, because we are looking awesome this year.
